About Us

We are committed to saving the Australian dingo (Canis dingo) from extinction.

We need your help before it is too late.

We are always looking for new members.

Would you like to own a dingo?  We are always looking for committed new owners.  It takes a special person/family to live harmoniously with a dingo.  More information about Owning a dingo and the Legal requirements can for each Australian State can be found on our website

Would you like to know more about the plight of the dingo?  We can provide a speaker for your organization, with or without a dingo; or you can attend one of our Dingo outings.

Dingo CARE Network was established in May 2004 as a voice for dingo conservation in Victoria.  The aims of Dingo CARE are to:

  • Conserve the dingo by managing and promoting a captive breeding program with stock shown to be DNA pure, and by lobbying to have the dingo taken off vermin lists and officially recognized as an endangered species.
  • Appreciate the unique qualities and characteristics of an animal that has survived in a range of Australian habitats for approximately 5000 years.
  • Research the biological and behavioral aspects of the dingo that have made this animal so unique, and little understood.
  • Educate the community regarding the nature of the dingo and its place in the Australian ecosystems, dispelling the many myths that have developed since European colonization.

Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds with one uniting goal, to have the dingo (Canis dingo) removed from ‘vermin’ lists and listed as a protected species in all mainland states of Australia.
